A Thankful Heart!

It has been a week ... but my heart is lingering in the spirit of Thanksgiving.
We kept the celebration small ... the simplicity made it wonderful!  Brother and Girlfriend DD split the cooking responsibilities with us!  That really lightened our intimate holiday.
The four of us leisurely enjoyed appetizers and cocktails while puppies played and the turkey roasted.
On an earlier post, I mentioned the arrival of a dillydally brainstorm ... well, we celebrated the results Thanksgiving Day!
Flicka was involved from the beginning ...
... stitches were cast on and knit ...
... gourds, squash and pumpkins came to life ...
... each one carefully inspected ...
... until our harvest was finally complete!
I used them to decorate our place settings ...
... their modest simplicity mirrored our day.  Family, fur babies and food ... the simple things that make life wonderful!  I am so very grateful for all that is part of my dillydally life.  My heart is full!

Do what you love.  Do dillydally!
